Let’s go back to square one with some tips and advice on what to wear on a first, second, or third date.
Dating fashion is sometimes another world, but the key is to dress-like and be yourself. If you normally do not wear two inch stiletto heels, do not feel like you have to wear them on a date. Dating can be stressful, but hopefully with these tips and dos and don’ts, your outfit will be one less thing to worry about.
Dress for the date circumstances. If you’re going mini-golfing or on a picnic, a faux fur jacket or your Manolo’s might not be the perfect things to adorn. A cute pair of denim or a lovely knit sweater paired with boots or wedges would be perfect for a date like this.
There is a fine line between form fitting and too tight. You want to feel confident and sexy, so wear something flattering to your body type. The question that many women ask, in regards to a date or just going out of the house, is how much is too much skin. It’s hard to differentiate between what is the right and wrong answer, as many have different opinions about this question. Remember, he should be paying more attention to your face and the conversation versus your anatomy.
A do is to wear your favorite color or a color that looks good on your skin. Also consider wearing a favorite piece of jewelry. Combining these two will make you feel confident, which will become apparent throughout the date. Feeling and looking comfortable is a must. The more relaxed you are, the better you will feel.
Do not wear a pound of makeup. Wear the same amount of makeup you wear on a day-to-day basis. Do not feel you need to do something different to your makeup to grab his attention. He wants to see you for you. If your date is in the evening, maybe try a darker lip color. Avoid anything you don’t feel confident in.
Do not look like a walking advertisement. Wearing too many designers or high-end things make intimidate the guy or give him the impression you’re high maintenance. Keep it simple with the labels. Besides, chances are he won’t know the difference between Forever 21 and True Religion denim.
My personal favorite date outfit is one of my favorite dresses paired with some tights, flats and a cardigan or blazer. This look is perfect for an afternoon or early dinner date.
Remember, the best thing you can wear on a date is a smile, good attitude and confidence. Also, make sure you have your girlfriend on speed dial to save you if the date isn’t going so hot. Works like a charm every time.
